AutoRap by Smule, the popular app that morphs normal speech into legit rap, has just been updated to version 2.0 with a number of improvements.

First off, AutoRap 2.0 boasts a totally rad new look, which is more in line with the visual style of iOS 7.

AutoRap 2.0 also features a new Rap Battle feed, where you can challenge rappers from all around the world. Furthermore, it brings improved invitations for Rap Battles. Introduced through the app's previous major update last January, Rap Battles let you challenge other rappers (whether skilled or would-be ones) to epic three-round, turn-based rap-offs.

  • Record Scratch: Now you can scratch records like a real DJ to give your verses some extra style.
  • Longer Raps: We've made the maximum recording time longer for more epic throwdowns!
  • Create Your Crew: Smule friends with AutoRap are now automatically added to your invite list so you can rap with your crew anytime, anywhere.
  • Improved Top Rappers Screen: Now it's even easier to check out the best raps!

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later, AutoRap 2.0 is available now in the App Store for free.
